Batmon: Pixhawk compatible, in-flight battery monitors with LED display

Happy new year to all flyers. 

We want to update the progress made on an in-flight battery monitor. Initial revisions of the board were meant to capture accurate cell voltages for the flight batteries. However, lot of feedback was received to push the board towards a minimal Battery Monitoring System. Currently, most diy'ers and professional…

Low current drain battery monitor with pixhawk interface (10 cell)

In-flight monitoring of total battery voltage and individual cell voltage is important for accurately estimating flight time. Monitoring the cell voltages during flight and operating load conditions help to predict battery health and cell degradation. 
We designed a battery monitor board to interface with pixhawk to read the cell voltages of flight…
